Preventative Overhead Crane Maintenance

Preventative Overhead Crane Maintenance at Street Cranexpress is a cost effective, timesaving, and intelligent alternative to reactive repairs.

It involves maintaining regular, high quality checks of your overhead cranes and lifting equipment to reduce the likelihood of breakdowns. Regular checks will also keep your overhead cranes and lifting equipment in top condition by ensuring they work more efficiently - ultimately extending their lifetime and boosting the performance of your operations. Whether it is one piece of lifting equipment, or multiple cranes on multiple sites, we provide planned maintenance services for a variety of overhead cranes.


What sets us apart?

1. Responsive support from our dedicated customer service team

Preventative Overhead Crane Maintenance Service from Street Cranexpress comes with the support of our friendly and helpful customer service team based at our well-equipped head office. We will take time to understand your requirements, make informed recommendations, and draw up a Preventative Maintenance Agreement that is best suited to your needs. A service frequency plan recommended by Street Cranexpress covers exactly what your cranes need – nothing missing and no unwanted extras. Using our bespoke planning software, once your service is due, our customer service team will ensure you receive a service reminder to prompt you to book a visit.

3. Recommended Repairs - PUWER/LOLER Regulations

Following each service visit, our Service-Follow Up and Estimating Team will ensure you will receive appropriate recommendations and quotations that will identify works to be carried out on your equipment to ensure it is kept as safe and productive as possible. Each repair quotation will detail the severity of each recommendation, allowing you to prioritise your spend accordingly. If any parts are ordered, we will allocate labour, advise you of the visit and our highly experienced service engineers will undertake the work for you.

Our Approach to Customer Needs

Street Cranexpress understands that each of our customers have different needs, that is why we will customise your preventative maintenance plan to your operations, your overhead cranes and your work duty cycles. Our number one priority is safety, and our engineers are trained to ensure high quality working practises are kept on customer sites. Street Cranexpress use specialist calculation software to determine how hard your cranes are working and can provide a maintenance plan in accordance with what is required to keep them running smoothly and effectively. The harder and longer your overhead cranes work, the more important it is that they are maintained accordingly.

High duty cranes are most at risk of a breakdown, but what if you could delve deeper into the underlying health of your cranes with much earlier diagnosis of future faults? See into the future with Advanced Crane Diagnostics.
